Chiredzi regional magistrate Judith Zuyu recently sentenced Farai Chimhamhasi (37) of Mateko village under Chief Ndanga to serve 90 years in prison after convicted of raping and impregnating his 13-year old child. 15 years were suspended on condition of good behaviour leaving an effective 75 years in prison. In passing sentence magistrate Zulu said,

You are the father to the complainant. She was only 13 years and very young to indulge in this adult behaviour. She was in primary school, a factor that shows she was just innocent and young and looking up to you for protection. You breached the trust that she had bestowed in you as the father. If a father can rape her own child what about other children within the community.

The court heard that Chimhamhasi raped his daughter after his wife had travelled for a funeral.
